A Singing Uterus Stars in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend!

By  |  15 Comments

Over 64,000 of you know Rachel Bloom as the singing uterus in my “A Singing Uterus Explains Perimenopause and Menopause” video.

Now hold on to your ovaries, just one week from today, Rachel will sing & dance onto Monday night TV in the new musical comedy series, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend premiering on the CW, October 12th!  Check your local listing for the time.


Rachel Bloom

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a romantic comedy that explores the psyche of a woman who abandons her phenomenal job at a law firm in New York, to find her high school-era ex-boyfriend in West Covina, CA – not exactly paradise!

Rachel is not only starring in the show, she created the show along with Aline Brosh McKenna.  You may have heard of Aline, she was the screenwriter of The Devil Wears Prada. I loved that movie!

I fell in love with Rachel in 2010 when I saw her music video (WARNING this video is NOT PG) about Ray Bradbury.  Of course, we all know Ray Bradbury who was the recipient of the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the 2004 National Medal of Arts, and the 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation. Apparently, Ray Bradbury fell in love with the video too (so did almost 3 Million other people!), and subsequently asked to meet Rachel!

I know that everyone does stuff, but not like Rachel does stuff.

Regardless of the topic, from menopause to obsessive young love, Rachel never fails to deliver gifted and creative tongue-in-cheek, hysterical comedy.  As I watch Rachel’s career soar, I will always remember and deeply appreciate, how she helped tens of thousands of women, both young and not so young, understand and prepare themselves for perimenopause and lives of self-empowerment.

Thanks, Rachel!  Next time I visit West Covina, I will be looking for you!

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.

    How exciting to for you and for Rachel! I will look for this show Ellen, and privately thank her for helping women understand what their bodies are going through during perimenopause and menopause! We need all the help we can get. Thanks for this announcement.

    • I sure will, Cathy. She and my son Jack did a great job on that music video for me. We reached a lot of 30ish women who may not have heard of perimenopause yet. Rachel is an amazing talent! I know this show is going to be a great hit.Who knows, maybe they will write some perimenopause schtick into the script!!!

    • Rachel’s new show continues not to disappoint. The musical numbers are hilarious!

  • I am all for anything that prepares women for what I WASN’T prepared for! And while a singing uterus wouldn’t necessarily speak (or sing) to me, whatever works, is my motto!

    • I reached out to Rachel and my son, Jack to create a music video to speak to the 30ish-year-old woman. Hoping to get their attention and introduce the word perimenopause to them. The best way was to do an edgy music video. I am very excited for Rachel with this new show that is on the top 5 shows to watch this season!

    Oh this sounds wonderful! So glad you mentioned it, Ellen. I will be on the lookout.

    • I am excited for Rachel. She is an awesome talent and a wonderful woman!

  • Cheryl Nicholl

    LOved that video and now I have a new TV show to look forward to! Thanks to both of you!

  • HI Ellen,

    I can’t wait to watch this. There is so much fun involved with making jokes about our own life experiences (especially menopause). : )


    • According to all the experts, this show is one of the top 5 new shows to watch. It should be very edgy and hilarious. Rachel is such a talent!

  • Mary La Fornara

    This sounds hilarious and I can’t wait to watch! We all need to laugh about these things.

    • Rachel is am amazing talent! Not sure if they will write any perimenopause or menopause stories into the script. If they do, I am sure they would be hilarious.

  • Lois Alter Mark

    I will definitely have to watch this! Who knows what can happen when you start your career as a singing uterus?!
